Abstract

The repeatability of cystometric and pressure-flow data was studied in 31 female patients. The measured parameters had poor correlation coefficients, and logarithmic transforming of the data was generally not warranted. Previous studies and statistical methods of reliability measurement are reviewed. It is suggested as a subject for future studies, that urodynamic measurements are repeated in each patient so that confidence limits can be established within disease entities.
